Kuhn Farm Machinery’s new front-mounted disc mower conditioner – the FC 3125 F – will be on display.

 

With a 3.10m working width, this new machine, which features improved terrain following capabilities and variable conditioning speeds, is ideal for use as part of a triple-gang setup, says Kuhn. When used in combination with a rear mounted twin mower conditioner – either the FC 8830 D or FC 9530 D – a total working width of 9.1-9.5 metres is possible.

 

The FC 3125 F uses a new design and linkage system to improve operator visibility and enable the mower to oscillate at angles of up to 30 degrees.

 

Mower suspension is controlled by Kuhn’s Lift-Control hydro-pneumatic ground pressure system which minimises crop damage and reduces wear and tear of the cutter bar by allowing the mowing unit to move vertically by up to 0.70m.

Massey Ferguson will show the new MF 2200 ProCut large square baler, which introduces clamp-on rotor fringes and other new features designed to increase capacity, with a finer, more uniform chop.


The Profitable Farming Company

The Profitable Farming Company will introduce a new iPad app which can be used with both the 600 series Automatic Application system for large square balers and the new 400T Automatic Application system for round and conventional balers.

 

The iPad control system is connected to the ECU that controls the application system on the baler using a Bluetooth antenna, avoiding additional cabling in the tractor cab.

JC Machinery will be exhibiting the latest Vredo 3m Agri Air Overseeder which now comes with the same large pneumatic seed hopper as the Agri Twin.

 

The Agri Air range is designed for smaller pastures with slopes or undulating terrain and offers increased stability and manoeuvrability.

 

Seed capacity is now 450 litres and the Agri Air features a hydraulically driven fan, allowing seed types such as rye or barley to be sown in addition to grass seed.

Shelbourne Reynolds is to launch a new range of Powermix vertical auger diet feeders. The Powermix Plus models are twin auger machines in sizes of 16, 18 and 22cu.m, all available with single or tandem axles.

 

A shorter, more compact layout means they are easier to manoeuvre around yards, while a simpler design incorporates the chassis into the tub weld assembly.

 

Bale chopping speed has been improved and spillage risk lessened through a new tub shape with smoother sides which is also said to improve material transition between mixing chambers for improved mixing performance and lower horsepower requirement.
